Donations Honoring Doye!

Okay, I am not soliciting donations for my mom! That's not what this post is about. I'm posting to say, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to my dear friend, Jessica!



An excerpt from Jessica's email, after having her long hair cut off:
"I am donating it to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program in honor of your mom."

What is the Pantene Beutiful Lengths Program?
Pantene Beautiful Lengths is a program that encourages women and men to grow, cut, and donate their hair to make real hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.

We don't yet know if mom will have to have chemo, but it is certainly something that she may be facing.

From the website:
"A real-hair wig allows a woman to look in the mirror and at least see a familiar face while she fights to regain a sense of normalcy in her life."

"...each wig requires at least six ponytails to make."

"As Pantene Beautiful Lengths wigs are created, they are distributed for free through select American Cancer Society wig banks across the country. Women facing cancer can find out about the availability of a Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig by calling the American Cancer Society at 1-877-227-1596."

My mom just cried & felt so loved & honored that Jess would do this in her name. We appreciate it a million times over! Thank you, Jess.

awww, that's a very good thing that you did but I wanted to tell you that your smile in this picture looks so genuine. You should be happy because you are doing a nice and caring thing by donating your hair.
